Hi, I'm Giuseppe Aquino

Professional background

From 02.2014 to 06.2014

The aim of the thesis was to unify and also simplify the visualization of time series data on the Web. Therefor a client, server-based framework has been developed, which can visualize large amounts of data in various formats, such as XML or JSON in the form of a graph. In this project I was responsable for the development of the server side of the framework.

From 09.2013 to 12.2013

For the industrial partner IBM Research Zurich the web interface of an application was renewed. The new web interface had to be compatible with already existing Web services. In addition, the usability and expandability of the web interface had to be improved. The result was a single-page web application, which implemented the MVC pattern.

Free Time Hobbies

I enjoy working out at the gym, but also in the forest with friends. One of my greatest hobbies is music. I love listening to old fashioned rock just like AC/DC or Lynyrd Skynyrd. Because of that and also the beautiful sound of the guitar, I started playing guitar a couple of years ago.
